Skilled DUI Defense Representation Throughout The Lowcountry
Many people charged with driving under the influence (DUI) or boating under the influence (BUI) mistakenly believe that there is nothing they can do to fight the charges. Even if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was over the inferred limit, you may have powerful defenses available to you. You need an attorney on your side who understands the technical statutes and procedures involved in all phases of DUI prosecution and trial.
I am George B. Bishop, Jr., a Berkeley County DUI defense lawyer and former prosecutor. With more than 30 years of experience on both sides of DUI cases, I have the knowledge and skill needed to explore all possible defenses for my clients. To discuss your case with me, call 866-850-4701 or contact me online.
Defending Against DUI, BUI And Drugged Driving Charges
Driving an automobile or a boat with a BAC over .08 percent may lead to your arrest in South Carolina. If you have been charged with drunk driving or a BUI while boating on Lake Marion, Lake Moultrie or adjoining waterways, the penalties you could be facing include loss of your driver’s license and ability to boat, jail time, sizeable fines and/or an increase in your auto insurance premiums. You do not want to face these charges alone.
Moreover, if the charges include evidence of breath test refusal or a BAC of .15 or more, your driver’s license is on the line. You have a limited amount of time to request a hearing to challenge the administrative license suspension. These issues are handled separately from the DUI charges in criminal court. I can guide you through the process and fight to challenge the DUI license suspension.
When you come to me for assistance with your DUI or BUI case, I will carefully evaluate police records, blood alcohol testing and any evidence associated with your case. As a former prosecutor, I have a unique perspective into how law enforcement officers and prosecutors handle these cases. I will explore all potential defenses and work hard to build the strongest possible case for you.
